He created animals to provide you
with warm clothing, food, and many
other benefits. How beautiful they look
when you lead them from their pasture
and bring them home!
They carry your loads to far-off lands;
without them you could not reach
those lands, except with great effort.
Your Lord is compassionate and merciful.
He has created horses, mules and donkeys,
which you may ride, or you may keep for
pleasure. He has created many things
beyond your knowledge.
-Qur'an, An-Nahl, Surah 16:5-8
